Session 1 – Setting Up
In this module we will set up the project using Design Layers, Stories, and levels. As well as setting up the project we will also start to create a library and template so that in future projects we will have an efficient way to get started.
Session 2 - Conceptual Modeling
In this module we will start to create our project using techniques to create the site model, property line, surrounding buildings, and the bulk and location of our project.
Session 3 - Creating Buildings
In this module we will learn about creating the project, drawing the walls, slabs, and roofs.
Session 4 - Creating Doors And Windows
In this session we will create doors and windows for our project using styles. These styles will allow the windows and doors to be created efficiently and saved to our library. We can also use these door and window styles to create a door and window schedule.
Session 5 - Interiors
In this session we will fit out the building placing fixtures in bathrooms, kitchens, adding stairs, and adding additional furniture and fixtures to the plan.
Session 6 - Creating Drawings
In this session will create our drawings. We will create a site plan, floorplans, sections, internal elevations, details and detail referencing.
